1 i haven’t really been drawn into the whole ipad world but if i keep coming across cool ipad covers like this wood one i might just cave and claim that our family “needs” one.
2 there are three cabbages in our fridge. three. what does one do with three cabbages?? (you get no points if you recommend coleslaw.)
3 as you can see, elisha got a haircut. it still pains me a bit to plunk down money for a kid’s haircut, but if they all continue to be as good as the last two, i’ll suffer the cost.
4 beet pesto was a winner. there was a teensy bit of drama when the boys saw it whirring away in the food processor. but the fact that it was pink and had “pesto” in the name won them over.
5 omar’s single-yolk version of michael’s genuine double yolk egg with tomato and asiago cheese was noteworthy. i kind of pulled an “elisha and asher” when i waltzed into the kitchen this morning, scrunched up my nose at seeing the tomato and egg and cream swirling around together, and told him i didn’t think i’d like it. but one bite made me a believer.
6 summer may officially descend upon us. the pool is open and ready to tire out the little people.
7 my boys are learning to write their names, and the other day while they were “writing” this turned into a discussion about any future kiddos’ names. top contenders for boys: jake the dog and cowboy.
8 speaking of writing, the academic goal for next year is to get the boys reading. i figure that’s ambitious enough for kindergarten.
9 i am knittng (!) a dress (!) for lenna, and the teeny tiny yarn feels like i’m knitting with thread. in a hand-cramping, eye-blurring kind of way. it better be cute.
10 i have managed to go 31 years without having a clue as to what Wuthering Heights is about. i will go another 31 years of not knowing anything if i only read it at night and doze off after the same 3 or so paragraphs.
11 our tradition of egg coloring and chocolate eating and spring celebrating on the first day of spring didn’t happen this year. as long as i get around to the boy-loved activities during spring i won’t feel too bad.
